Jacob tells her that he cannot see her anymore, and seems aware that the Cullens are vampires. But later that night Jacob comes to Bella's house, apologizes and tries to give her a hint about what has happened to him.
After he leaves, Bella recalls an old story about the Quilette Werewolves, part of Jacob's tribal heritage. Bella soon finds out that Jacob is a werewolf , a secret that had always been in his family's genetics but reveals itself only when vampires, the werewolves' natural enemies, are around. It is a secret he is forced to keep from Bella at first, but he eventually finds a way around it, making Bella guess what he is.
As soon as Bella figures it out, Jacob reveals as much as he can without betraying his pack. Bella and Jacob begin to spend more and more time together. He reveals that Laurent was killed after they chased him from the meadow, but the "redhead" vampire is still at large.
Bella realizes that it is Victoria, still trying to kill her. Jacob and his pack then decide to protect Bella as best they can. Needing another dose of adrenaline, Bella wants to try cliff-jumping, a recreational activity, participated in by Jacob's friends, but Jacob tells her it is not safe by herself and cannot find time to take her, since he and the other werewolves are busy protecting the town against Victoria. However, Bella grows tired of waiting for Jacob.
She jumps and gets caught in a riptide in the water. After a few minutes, Jacob rescues her and brings her to safety. When they return to Jacob's house, they learn that Charlie's friend, Harry Clearwater , has passed away because of a heart attack.
Bella's cliff dive sets off a series of unprecedented events. At the same time of her cliff dive, Alice, Edward's "sister" who has visions of the future , foresees Bella jumping to her apparent death.
However, werewolves are invisible to her foresight, and she does not see Jacob rescuing Bella. Presuming Bella is dead, Alice rushes to Forks to check on Charlie. When Alice gets there, she finds Bella alive and well. Bella is thrilled to see her again, and she explains that was not committing suicide. For a time Alice stays at Bella's house, an arrangement which Charlie is happy to accept.
But when Alice and Charlie are speaking alone, Charlie confesses how tough it has been for both of them. He fears that she will never recover, even with Jacobs around, and he clearly vents his anger to Alice that Edward is responsible. However Charlie is happy to have her around. But Rosalie, not knowing the truth, called Edward to tell him that Bella is dead. Edward wants to see if it is actually true by calling at Bella's home. When Edward calls, Jacob answers the phone, however, and informs Edward, who is impersonating Carlisle Cullen, that Charlie is at the funeral, referring to Harry, but Edward draws the conclusion that it is Bella's funeral.
Having lost the will to exist as immortal, Edward flees to Italy to see the Volturi peace-keeping vampires who would be able to kill Edward if he broke the vampire laws thus granting him leave of a world without Bella. Alice foresees this however, and in a panic she and Bella hasten to stop him. Bella and Alice rush to Italy to stop Edward. Bella stops Edward from stepping into the sunlight by running with all her energy to save him, he is happy to see Bella and know she is alive.
She states you didn't have to feel guilty or anything, I can let you go now. He states you'll never have to let go. The reason why Edward decided to reveal himself is because Aro refused to kill him at first so he tries to break the law by an act that would have revealed the existence of vampires and invoked the wrath of the Volturi.
Instead, all three of them are brought before the Volturi for judgment. Aro, the most exuberant of the Volturi and their overall leader, is very curious about Bella and her power to block Edward's mind reading. So he sets up tests for her, and finds out that neither he nor Jane can affect her. Intriguied, Aro asks if she wants to join the Volturi when she is a vampire, but she refuses.
One of the leaders, Caius, states that Edward has still broken the law by revealing the vampire world to a human, violating the one rule of keeping the existence of vampires a secret. Therefore they decree that Bella must be killed because she knows too much about vampires.
Aro however says that Bella may still live if Edward will turn her into a vampire himself. They are saved when Alice shows Aro a vision of the future. Aro, who can also read minds, sees Bella becoming a Vampire and is satisfied. The three are free to leave on one condition: Bella must be turned into a vampire, and soon. When they all return to Forks, Bella wakes up to see Edward and believes she had drowned or is dreaming and starts going into hysterics. Edward tells her what he was doing before he heard about her dying, that he left to try and protect her because, in spite of his words, he still loves her deeply.
But she still believes that he is a dream. He finally manages to make her believe he is real by kissing her. He also explains that he will never leave her again. She is happy to have him back, but he upsets her when he says that he won't damn her soul by turning her into a vampire. Bella knows that she must become a vampire, knowing that the Volturi are incredibly powerful and will surely punish them for breaking their deal. She then tells him that she is going to ask his family to vote on the matter.
Everybody says yes to her being a vampire except Edward and Rosalie, with the latter only voting no because she herself resents the life of a vampire and feels obliged to at least vote otherwise. Edward is angry at his family, but Carlisle himself will not risk Edward running off to the Volturi if Bella dies as a mortal.
Edward takes Bella home, and tells Bella that he will turn her himself after she marries him. Bella is subsequently healed from her psychological wounds, and her life begins anew. After spending some time with Bella, Jacob starts experiencing some unexpected and drastic changes with his mood swings, body, and personality. As Jacob undergoes a very long, painful and life-altering transformation, Bella and Charlie become concerned.
A few weeks later, Bella notes that Jacob isn't as happy-go-lucky as he once was. She isn't so comfortable with Jacob's recent changes, and shortly thereafter, she discovers that Jacob has unwillingly become a werewolf, and that there are other tribe members who are werewolves too.
Jacob and his pack protect Bella from the vampire, Laurent , who was a part of James' coven, and also Victoria , who seeks revenge for her dead mate, James , whom the Cullens had killed in the previous installment.
Jacob starts developing physical emotions towards Bella, but she doesn't feel the same after experiencing a life-changing breakup with Edward. This makes him horribly sad and envious of Edward. Jacob then saves Bella from drowning after jumping off a cliff and almost kisses her in the events following.
Meanwhile, a series of miscommunications leads Edward to believe that Bella has committed suicide by jumping off a cliff. Distraught over her suspected suicide, Edward flees to Volterra, Italy to provoke the Volturi , vampire royalty who are capable of killing him, though they refuse, deeming his mind-reading ability to be too valuable.
In contrast to Edward's rash reaction to the news of Bella's death, Alice Cullen cleverly makes a surprise visit to Bella's house, which overwhelms Bella.
Bella asks a series of questions, and Alice tells her that she saw Bella trying to kill herself. As Alice's visions about Edward change rapidly, Alice and Bella are unable to clearly understand whether Edward is or will be safe. They rush to Italy to prevent Edward from revealing himself to humans so the Volturi are forced to kill him, arriving just in time to stop him. Before leaving Italy, the Volturi tell Edward that Bella, a human who knows that vampires exist, must either be killed or transformed into a vampire to protect the secret.
When they return to Forks, Edward tells Bella that he has always loved her and only left Forks to protect her. She forgives him, and the Cullens vote in favor of Bella being transformed into a vampire, to Rosalie and Edward's dismay. However, Jacob sternly reminds Edward about an important part of their treaty: When Bella reminds him that it's none of his concern as being a vampire is what she wants, Jacob reveals it is his business as she doesn't understand what's going to be at stake for her and the Cullens.
Before he can continue warning her, they hear Charlie asking Bella to get inside the house at once. Jacob apologizes to Bella once more before leaving, and the story concludes with Charlie grounding Bella for running off to Italy. After Meyer finished writing Twilight , she found herself writing multiple, hundred-page epilogues, and has said, "I quickly realized I wasn't ready to stop writing about Bella and Edward. Meyer wrote New Moon in five months.
She found the editing process "much longer and more difficult than the same process with Twilight. However, Meyer considers Jacob to be her favorite gift the book gave, as she liked the character a lot and wanted to expand his role and presence. The confrontation with the Volturi in the clock tower at the end of the book was the first scene Meyer wrote.
She did not want to use a real city as the location for the Volturi's residence, as she did with Forks. Therefore, she chose Volterra and called it "a pretty creepy coincidence. The first draft of New Moon differed significantly from the manuscript published. Originally, Bella never found out that Jacob was a werewolf, and as a result, the seventy pages following Bella's discovery of Jacob's nature were missing.
The epilogue was also different in title and content. According to Meyer, the story was inspired by Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet. Meyer has expressed on numerous occasions that she had no hand in choosing the cover,  and said that she does not like it.
She described it as "a very lovely ruffled tulip that means nothing at all".
However, the artwork team that designed the cover chose the image of a tulip losing one of its petals, aiming to represent Bella losing a drop of blood. When Meyer finished writing the book, she wanted a title that referred to a time of day to match Twilight. As it reflected the mood of the sequel, she titled the novel New Moon , "the darkest kind of night, a night with no moon", to refer to the darkest period of Bella's life.
It spent over 47 weeks in total on the list. By , Publishers Weekly reported that New Moon had sold 1. The novel received mostly positive reviews with some critics feeling that it dragged in the middle.
Martin of School Library Journal praised the book, saying, "Less streamlined than Twilight yet just as exciting, New Moon will more than feed the bloodthirsty hankerings of fans of the first volume and leave them breathless for the third".
This tale of tortured demon lovers entices. However, she gave the book 3. A film adaptation of New Moon was released on November 20, Quotations related to New Moon novel at Wikiquote. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
